The Israeli policy of erasing memory is cutural as well as physical. Aside from
- murdering Palestinians this month on the Great March of Return in Gaza,
- on top of the history of house demolitions
- and right at the start, during the Nakba, the flattening of over 500 villages and subsequent erasure of them,
the Nakba law, deprives Israeli public institutions, including schools, universities and libraries, of funding should they mark the Nakba, and is aimed at erasing memory.
70 years from the Nakba, let’s defy Ben Gurion’s prediction that while many have died, those alive will not forget.
